EST. 1888

The Dormitory is a historic event venue located in the downtown area of Auburn, Georgia. This unique building was constructed in 1888 and was formerly used as a women's dormitory for the Perry - Rainey College, which is no longer standing. The Dormitory has been meticulously restored by the City of Auburn and renovated with the goal of maintaining its historic characteristics and charm.

This historic building features original hardwood floors, rustic-elegant chandeliers, exposed brick and vintage architectural hardware. It boasts an abundance of natural light, and an open floor plan that can easily be decorated and customized to your preference. The 5000-square-foot event space is perfect for both your ceremony/reception or corporate function. The top floor can  accommodate up to 160 ceremony/reception guests or 200 guests for reception only. 


The main floor of the Dormitory includes a lobby, cocktail (studio) area and warming kitchen. The studio or cocktail area is also used for meetings, wedding/baby showers, small parties and rehearsal dinners. The large ballroom’s where your event will take place, are situated on the second floor of this urban chic venue.

You are welcome to choose your own outside vendors for a truly personalized affair. There is an on-site prep area for your caterer. Couples can choose from a variety of event rentals including chairs, tables, drapery and centerpieces.
